Why We Don’t Endorse in Every Race

WHY (read carefully) …

The Board of Directors of Grassroots America – We the People sets a very high standard for granting endorsements. We do not make endorsements based on popularity, appeasing interested groups, or on political risk. We are dedicated to raising a higher standard for public office; thus, what incumbent officeholders actually do is far more important than what they say and promise.

During the March Primary Elections, we work hard to get the most conservative Republican candidates elected because that is where voters have the only opportunity to weed out the liberal/progressive Democrat-lite Republicans.  

How Some Republicans Lose Our Gold Star Rating

Elected officials are employed by “We the People” and are hired at the ballot box to do a job. In some Primary and Primary Runoff elections, there are races where no candidate in a particular race meets our standard. There are also General Election cycles (Republicans vs. Democrats), where we cannot endorse ALL Republicans because some Republicans have badly fallen down on the job – ignored Republican Platform Principles, turned a blind eye to corruption, have too many liberal record votes, have undercut an “anti-swamp” President, voted against conservatives in their district, ignored constituents, placed a higher value on politics rather than upholding the Texas Constitution, followed what political consultants/the Governor/the Lt. Governor or the TX House Speaker advise instead of their own constituents, and/or ignored written communications when they are asked to respond in writing.

Whatever you tolerate – you get more of! Grassroots America will not grant elected “employees” with this type of job performance a “gold star approval” any more than we would give a raise to an employee who consistently failed to show up for work.  To do so undermines our mission, our credibility, your God-given rights, the rule of law, and ultimately – liberty.
